and I will be on my ship. Ahhhhh.
In the meanwhile I am working for the 4th time on Nagini – the b*stard sock from h*ll. It finally fits properly and now I have to stop myself from changing it into an ankle sock to just be finished with the blasted thing already.
I have packed Bellatrix, because one Nagini is going to be enough for me. I can tell. Can’t you? I am going to be using some evily-tinged green bamboo blend yarn named Hedera Helix from Perchance to Knit. Gorgeous stuff.
I have been catching up on my blog reading (sorry if I haven’t gotten to you yet – I will) and the posts at Fat Chick Crafts have been giving me a lot to think about. Being overweight can be an all consuming thing and it is amazing how polarized discussions about weight/weight loss quickly become.
In that department – I was down 3.2 lbs at the last weigh in. Which means I actually lost close to 11 lbs, because I didn’t go back for 3 weeks – I couldn’t cope with having those numbers recorded — or paying $15 to be told what I already knew.
Oh and speaking of $’s – could our dollar be any better as I head off to Alaska? Let the shopping begin! That reminds me, I need to do an internet search for yarn shops in the ports of call since I haven’t found any in the past.
I haven’t been able to put Pope Joan down but I abandoned Until I Find You – I saw too much of an online review while linking to the sidebar and had no interest in ‘gratuitous passages of sexual abuse’. Come on.
I’ll leave you with a pic of the last Hydrangeas of this season.
Oooh and also today while I was in the dentist’s chair, struggling to relax during a root canal, what comes on the radio? Yep. Flight of the Conchords. Business Time. Jemaine Clement. A perfect distraction.
